1. Don't give away the results! Some people haven't seen it yet.
2. Have you ever been caught in a kneebar? Do you have any idea how much damage a 250lb. bjj blackbelt hyperextending your knee can do?

I think the experience will do Lesnar some good. A bit of a reality check for him (not that he was being unrealistic). Maybe a little BJJ and grappling type stuff and he will be someone to fear in the future. All he needs is the guidance by the sounds

Taking on an experienced, black belt BJJ, ex heavy champ as his UFC debut wasn't a small task.
I think Lesnar has the goods, power, conditioning, he could scramble on the ground, to be effective, but he's going to need a lot more experience with BJJ.
I think one of the biggest factors about workout with bjj isn't just knowing how to defend against a submission once it's in the threat of being applied, its knowing whether you're putting yourself in that bad situation or not.

I loved all the pro wrestlers that showed up though. The people at the sports bar I was at went nuts when they showed them in the crowd.

I'm glad for MMA's sake that Lesnar lost. However, I don't think this damages his career too much. A loss will slow his career down, which is exactly what he needed.

I'm not surprised at all by what happened. Brock didn't look too gunshy, though. He charged in and got the takedown, threw some big punches from what it appeared. He's got time to improve.
I think Mir could Nog a really tough fight.
Ok, that's just to get Alex all riled up.

Jas, you watch these events at bars? I don't know how you can do that. I have to be by myself in a very controlled environment. I've watched a few at bars and with friends and it's just not as good. Me+TV+MJ+JB=perfect MMA viewing environment.

I was kinda glad he lost but did so showing that he could be a legit fighter. It was a win win for the UFC in my mind

Watch it, or he'll use his broad and open opinions to tell you how much of a far-left, hippy worshipping, tree hugger Fedor is because he doesn't come out to his fights behind Bruce Springsteen with a US-flag draped around his body.

I know, in his absence I forgot the only way to deal with the dude is not take anything out of his mouth seriously. I forgot that for a thread and actually tried to have a logical debate with him.
Ended up having to put him on my ignore list.

Yeah, he's still more entertaining than a lot of the mindless tard around here. He's got some intelligence it's just misguided.
